Corrales - Castillo meet in "The Rematch"

When the two met in May, Diego "Chico" Corrales and Jose Luis Castillo were both seen as wily veterans capable of producing fireworks and a good dose of toughness. When they meet this time it will be as legendary rivals attempting to top what was one of the most exciting fights in decades. Chico, despite winning with a spectacular comeback stoppage, took a severe beating and hit the deck hard twice before gutting it out for the win. Likewise, Castillo took his share and was stopped while on his feet. The fighter who has most left in the tank will likely be the winner Saturday. They both say they expect a war again, but I don't. Both will have vivid memories of the pain from the first fight and we should expect more jabs than bombs. Corrales actually has skills that he can exploit to a clear advantage. He claims that he can only fight one way – all out – but look for him to impose a broader range of talent to gain a substantial advantage over the rugged and willing ex-champ. If the fight is even half as good as the first it is still worth the price of admission – and then some. Corrales by decision.

(Wow.DC seemed very flat,and was leaving himself wide-open.JC-to his credit-looked VERY sharp...)

While JC may very well win the third fight (and yes,I DO think there should and will be one) My gut-feeling is that the third bout will be much different than the last two,with Diego trying to box more from the outside and using his jab more.Just a thought...:-)

P.S.-While I certainly feel as though it was unprofessional,and brought a renewed focus on the day-before weigh-in issue,I do NOT think it had ANY bearing on the fight itself...
